Tamil women from Kilinochchi trafficked to Nepal

Nepalese police have rescued two Tamil women who were trafficked out of Kilinochchi into Kathmandu last month, reports the Kathmandu Post.

Nepal’s Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) found the two women, aged 24 and 33, at a hotel in Thamel area of the capital on August 25. They had arrived in Nepal in May.

The women were subsequently sent back to Sri Lanka this week.

They had reportedly paid a broker to take them to Canada and were first taken to Indonesia according to a police spokesperson.
